      I could not discern any perfume but the beds are raised so I did not get up close and personal to the blooms in every instance. Long arms are my friend to get the macro shots! The blooms were magnificent despite the relentless winds all summer. This garden is relatively sheltered which must help. My roses do not fare so well.

        I think the Lagoon gardeners employed by the City Council are very proud of their patch. The beds are well fertilised and maybe watered well? I was heartened to see there was some black spot on leaves after all the humidity we have had – just like I have on mine.
        You appreciate a fine rose as I’ve seen in your posts:-)
